Hero of the Hour – Sir Nicholas Soames MP

Churchill’s grandson Sir Nicholas Soames shares wise words just as ‘The Telegraph ’bizarrely tips Ken Clarke as Britain’s next Prime Minister

It sadly won’t likely happen, but Sir Nicholas Soames ought to be our next Prime Minister.

 

Weirdly, this morning, the once great but now the deranged and increasingly right leaning The Telegraph suggested: “If the people’s Boris can’t beat Parliament, prepare for Prime Minister Ken Clarke.” Arguing that this “implacable Remainer” has the “reputation, experience and pedigree” to “command agreement,” the paper’s Philip Johnston  argued that his proposition “sound[ed] fanciful but stranger things have happened.”

 

With Johnston concluding, whatever occurs when Parliament returns, “there will be blood,” the voice of reason elsewhere yesterday was the giant of a politician and grandson of Sir Winston Churchill, Sir Nicholas Soames.

 

“Forthright and outspoken” according to Sky News, Sir Nicholas spoke of Brexit in interview at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and announced of Brexit: “It’s really the most serious crisis to face this country since 1940.”

 

He went as far as to claim Margaret Thatcher would not have taken the United Kingdom out of the European Union and remarked: “What they want to do is to leave on 31st October, regardless it seems of the consequences. I think that is a highly foolish thing to do.”

 

This wise and distinguished gentleman politician then added:

 

“The charge I do not absolve [Boris Johnson] from is wanting to have a no-deal Brexit, which I think would be a disaster for my country. If it happens, I think it’s very bad news for our country at what is a very bad time for our world. I think it’s going to make us less independent, less influential and less secure.”

 

Sadly though he is likely to retire at the next election, we’d urge Sir Nicholas to follow in the footsteps of his grandfather; it’s time for a Churchillian comeback.
